Director of Administration

It is planned that our current Administration Director, Alistair Lamyman, will be standing down from the Board at the Autumn Members’ Meeting in September and we are now seeking a new appointee.

We are looking to recruit a new Director of Administration to commence a handover period at the end of July and to take over the role at the Autumn Members Meeting. Interviews will take place on the 20th or 21st July in Birmingham.

The person appointed will join a progressive and hardworking Board, focussed on further developing the reputation and status of the organisation. They will participate in all Board and Management meetings and become a Trustee of the Charity.

The Director of Administration contributes fully to the strategic planning of the board. This is a variable role that requires adaptability and innovation in handling the administration of BABS. They are the custodian of the constitution, and the primary owner of BABS policies, ensuring that they continue to meet our needs. They will also gain experience with working with the Charities Commission and ensuring we are compliant with requirements. They also plan and manage the admin behind Council meetings (the AGM and Autumn Members' Meeting), and Board Meetings.

A good standard of computer literacy is important, as another role is the management of our Google Workspace, ensuring its smooth running. Experience of HR or personnel experience within business would be useful.

This role has one direct report - the BABS Board Secretary.

As with all positions on the Board, the position is unpaid, but expenses are paid.

Please email [email protected] with your CV and letter of application, giving details of both your professional and barbershop careers along with two references. Applicants are very welcome to contact Alistair Lamyman, [email protected], or Shanna Wells, [email protected], for more information or a chat about the role, and being a Trustee, prior to application.

We are looking to recruit a new Director of Music and Education to commence a handover period at the end of July and to take over the role at the Autumn Members Meeting. Interviews will take place on the 20th or 21st July in Birmingham.

The person appointed will join a progressive and hardworking Board, focussed on further developing the reputation and status of the organisation. They will participate in all Board and Management meetings and become a Trustee of the Charity.

The Director of Music and Education will chair the Music Education Strategy Team and work alongside them to bring a forward-thinking musical programme to both benefit the members of the organisation and the wider community. They will also work alongside the Director of Events in the organisation of musical/educational events.

The person appointed will not necessarily need music education experience but would need experience in strategic planning, working with budgets, team leadership, and be an organised worker with good communication skills. As with all positions on the Board, the position is unpaid, but expenses are paid.
